has there been any effort to get his shows on the archive?

Not as far as I know yet, though that would be cool. I don't personally know if he's trade-friendly though?

My guess would be no, just b/c he doesn't play live alot and would probably want to issue official releases like "Nighthawks" and "Big Time" ( i think that was the title of the one he released in the 90's)when he does...there was also that stupid incident he had to deal with when Frito Lay asked him to sing on an ad for them; when he said "no" they got a "sound-alike" to do a Tom Waits-like growl for their chips and he sued (and won!)...so he might be a bit gun shy about issues regarding availability of his songs or even his voice.

Sure would be great to see him on the archive, though!

BTW, I'm very pleased that another of my favorite bands, The Cowboy Junkies--a pretty big commercial success relative to many of the "bar bands"--and no offense meant!--that appear here, seem perfectly at ease w/having their shows available.

I figured if a band that well-known is cool with it, maybe Tom would be, too?

CJ were one of the earlier additions to the site and it's funny, wherever news of the LMA leaked into the press, I noticed it always seemed to be like, "They even have the Cowboy Junkies!" :)

Cowboy hats off to the band for their generosity!

Amen to that!

One gets the feeling Margo and her boys are just cool folks in that laid-back, Canadian way we could probably all benefit from here in the states.
